Canada Global (Web News) Environment Canada issued snowfall and freezing rain advisories for numerous areas on Wednesday, signalling the arrival of yet another wave of winter weather in Southern Quebec.
Starting on Wednesday night, two to five millimetres of freezing rain are predicted to fall in Montreal after the city’s thaw. Streets and walkways will become “icy, slippery, and hazardous,” the public meteorological agency warns.
“Consider postponing any unnecessary journey until the situation improves. The warning states that rush hour traffic in urban areas could be significantly affected.
Additionally, freezing rain is anticipated in the Richelieu Valley-Saint-Hyacinthe and Eastern Townships, where accumulations might reach 15 millimetres.
Environment Canada predicts that beginning Wednesday evening, additional locations will experience a combination of ice pellets and heavy snowfall.
Up to 15 centimetres of sloppy precipitation might fall in the Laurentians and Lanaudière, making driving in those regions hazardous.
“Prepare to change your driving style if the road conditions change. In some areas, rapidly falling snow may make travel challenging, according to the warning.
